Help students succeed on state writing assessments with this collection of weekly homework sheets that give them practice with “on demand” writing. Students learn how to respond to a prompt, write an attention-grabbing introduction, spice up their essay with lively verbs, descriptive adjectives, and figurative language, and more. Homework sheets include a note to parents that explains the skill being studied, lists related standards, provides samples of student work, and offers instructions on how to help their child complete the assignment. A great way to strengthen the home-school connection! For use with Grades 3-5.
